Question about Baby Lock Sewing Machines

1 Answer

I have managed to wind a large amount of thread around the hand wheel of my baby lock symphony machine. Any way to get it unwound without taking the entire machine apart of taking it in for service

Was able to get some of it out but there is more thread stuck in there.

Use a craft knife or Exacto Blade and cut it any way you can get at the threads. If you can find the end, you can put it in reverse and pull gently.

    Sorry, but I unwound it as much as I could. I have two ends and neither of them will let me pull or unwind any more.

    Get one of these and extend the blade full length and slice the thread to bits. Blow it out with a can of compressed air.

The tread cutter quit working on my Baby Lock Symphony Sewing Machine. How can I fix it?

You may want to take the sewing machine to a good repair shop. (Local sewing machine shop repair personnel do vary.) The thread cutter is XC8674252, https://www.sewingpartsonline.com/thread-cutter-assembly-brother-xc8674252.aspx . It is a non-returnable, non-refundable part. There is a chance for the circuit board to get damaged if mishandled. That's why the part isn't accepted for returns.

As a general rule, electronic sewing machines are best serviced by someone who knows how to safely work on delicate electronic (minimize static, ground yourself relative to the hardware under repair).

I hope this helps. This part fits in near the bobbin case. However, I've not worked with the BabyLock Symphony myself.

How do I wind the bobbin?

There are several ways. On most machines you put the empty bobbin on the spine over the bulk of the machine on the right hand side. Twist some threads around the bobbin to get started, then put the thread through the thread loop above the shuttle area on your left side. That keeps the tread tension right. There is a gear the clicks into the bobbin. You push that closed. You will have to release the clutch by turning the large wheel on your right hand side. Not hard to find and it usually is hand size. It is the one that goes around and around when you are sewing. Grasp it firmly and turn the top toward you. This will prevent the needle from going up and down when the thread is pulled onto the bobbin. Don't forget to tighten the large "wheel" when you are done.

Why the bobbin wont wind correctly

My Brother has another spindle to wind the bobbin. Be sure to thread the thread through the two loops. I wind the thread around the bobbin a little and then start the machine. I find that using the cutter on the bobbin spindle helps to hold the thread on place.

Wound thread around the hand wheel

You should be able to pull the cover of the hand wheel off. Just firmly grab the hand wheel and pull straight back.

Bobbins wind unevenly- tension issues

Sounds like it is actually the tension on the bobbin winder. Make sure that the thread is following the correct path to the bobbin. Other than getting it repaired, a stand-alone bobbin winder (avlb @ JoAnn's or online) for ~$30 would work. One brand is called the Sidewinder. Verify that your bobbins will work on it because some Singer bobbins will not. It's a nice accessory to have because it saves wear 'n tear on your machine plus you can wind bobbins without unthreading the machine.

FWIW, it is usually better to wind bobbins at a slower speed. Higher speed will tend to make the bobbin jump around and the thread to pop off. In addition, higher speed will tend to stretch the thread going onto the bobbin. The thread will not relax until unwound from the bobbin and stitched into your garment. It may cause the fabric to pucker as the thread relaxes. Slower is better!

My elna sewing machine bobbin won't spin on top to wind thread around. The fly wheel spins though...I've been putting thread on the bobbins by hand.

If the fly wheel is going around then the clutch isn't disengaged to wind the bobbin, you need to pull out the flywheel on your model to disengage the clutch for bobbin winding.

Take thread from thread spool across to bobbin winder thread guide, then back to bobbin and thread the tail through the hole on top of the bobbin. Place bobbin onto spindle on top of machine and then push it against the stop to engage the bobbin winding motor. HOld the thread tail up and start winding slowly until the bobbin core has been covered including the starting point. Stop and trim off the thread tail with scissors. COntinue winding bobbin and give the thread a nudge if needed to wind evening top middle and bottom of the bobbin. A good smooth wind is important. Also don't wind at full speed and keep an eye on the thread reel that the thread is coming off, you don't want it bouncing around as this will **** the thread and stretch then relax it affecting your bobbin wind.

Obviously if you know this and the bobbin winding mechanisim is just not working, then it will need a service/replacement by an Elna repair person.

I have a singer 2732 and have misplaced the manual. I'm trying to wind thread on a new bobbin but I must have forgot some part of the process. Can anyone offer instructions? Thanks!

Hi, I hope this helps. It's kind of hard without pictures, but I'll do my best:
1)With the spool of thread affixed in it's normal spot, take the thread and wind it through that weird hooky thing (like normal) at the 'back' of the machine.
2)Then bring the thread towards the front of the machine and around the metal 'button' on the top of the machine. Do not loop around this, merely guide the thread on on the side closest to you, towards the right hand side of the machine.
3)Thread your bobbin.
4)Put the bobbin on the metal arm and push to the right (gently).
5)Push the 'button' in the hand wheel in so one end of it will pop out (this will stop the needle from going up & down while you're winding the bobbin)
6)Start pressing the foot pedal slowly and things should start to work.

Threads caught in the take up lever wheel

looking at the top left side you should see a hole large enough for a screwdriver and through that hole there is a screw. Loosen the screw and the left side cover should come off.
